Cent Scot Docu Fest

The Central Scotland Documentary Festival is proud to present a programme for 2022 which celebrates creative documentary and non-fiction filmmaking from around the world.

Curated and presented by Macrobert Arts Centre’s Film Programme Manager Grahame Reid, the festival continues to be a fitting tribute to the city of Stirling, which is the birthplace of the ‘father of documentary’ John Grierson. 2022 sees the 5th iteration of the festival which opened to filmmaker submissions for the first time last year.

With screenings taking place across Macrobert’s Filmhouse and Playhouse, plus a special immersive event that sees audiences partying on the Mainhouse stage, the 2022 edition of the festival will be a real celebration of documentary filmmaking.

Over five days, the 5th edition of the Festival will showcase 23 films, comprising 1 world, 2 European, 5 UK, 9 Scottish Premieres and some of the best documentaries from throughout the year.

The Central Scotland Documentary Festival has once again invited documentary and non-fiction filmmakers to submit their work. Over 45 entries from 22 countries  were received, with a selection committee narrowing the films down to 13 Official Selections that will vie for two awards - The Jury Award, selected by an independent panel of industry and academic judges and The Audience Award, to be selected by the attendees of the festival.

This year's festival will run from 3 - 7 November. Further details on the films being screened can be found here.
